Posey went 2-for-4 with a double and a pair of RBI in Friday's 7-1 win over Oakland. Posey has been dealing with some hip inflammation -- which is why he won't be participating in the All-Star Game -- but his performance over the last two games (5-for-11 with three RBI) is a positive sign for his fantasy owners. The 31-year-old is slashing .289/.367/.412 heading into the break.
Posey went 3-for-7 with an RBI and two strikeouts in Wednesday's extra-innings win over the Cubs. Posey delivered the game-winning hit, smacking a walkoff single to right in the bottom of the 13th. Even after the three-hit day, the veteran backstop is hitting just .172 over his past eight games without an extra-base hit. He's still sporting a solid .282/.362/.404 line on the year.
Posey is not in the lineup for Tuesday's game against the Cubs, Kerry Crowley of The San Jose Mercury News reports. Posey will take a seat Tuesday after going 0-for-5 each of the past two games. There is no indication of any injury beyond the hip inflammation that will keep the veteran catcher out of next week's All-Star Game. Nick Hundley will start behind the plate and bat cleanup for the Giants.
Posey will miss the upcoming All-Star Game due to a nagging hip injury, Alex Pavlovic of NBC Sports Bay Area reports. Although Posey is situated to bat second Monday against the Cubs, he'll be unavailable for the upcoming All-Star Game, as he's expected to receive an injection during the break to help his right hip inflammation. Posey figures to continue to battle through the issue during the final two series, but manager Bruce Bochy believes Posey's power has been impacted by the issue, Kerry Crowley of The San Jose Mercury News reports.
Posey is not in the lineup for Thursday's series finale against the Rockies, Amy Gutierrez of NBC Sports Bay Area reports. Posey will take a seat for Thursday's day game with Nick Hundley getting the start behind the plate and batting sixth. The 31-year-old has struggled a bit in June with a .244/.344/.385 slash line in 78 at-bats.
